Shortly before 4 a.m. on Monday, April 8, a semi crash on the 605 Freeway in Santa Fe Springs resulted in injury. A big rig and multiple other vehicles collided on the southbound side of the freeway near Telegraph Road. The impact caused the semi to spill fuel on the roadway, forcing the closure of all but two lanes until as late as 8 a.m. The crash is under investigation.
“Due to the size and weight of semi trucks, they have the potential to exert tremendous force in an impact,” explained California truck accident lawyer James Ballidis, “and collisions involving them can result in serious injury.”
Santa Fe Springs accounted for 3 of the 346 fatalities and 425 of the 62,881 injuries suffered in motor vehicle collisions that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 47 of the fatal and 1,535 of the injury collisions that occurred in Los Angeles County that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to those who were injured in the semi crash on the 605 Freeway.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this Santa Fe Springs collision.
